It may seem like there’s no limit to the achievements of the Kardashian and Jenner women, but just for now, we’ve found one. Thanks to some expert Photoshopping by a fan of Kylie Jenner, many people believe the youngest Jenner has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in Realizing Things. Really.
This past January, Jenner posted a video saying that she believed 2016 would be the year of ‘realizing things.’ It’s a pretty vague statement, but in fact the businesswoman has realized some serious profits thanks to her Kylie Cosmetics line. Along with TV appearances and social media sponsorship, the reality star’s net worth is estimated at $12 million.
Is that enough money to buy Jenner a Presidential Medal of Freedom? No. But thanks to the magic of Photoshop, we can still pretend.
As seen in the comments above, Jenner herself got a pretty good laugh out of the hoax, writing ‘Stfu lmfao’ when a fan posted the doctored pic. While the 19-year-old was aware that the image was a joke, not everyone on the internet was in on the gag.
Some were surprised.

While a few people figured out pretty quickly it was a fake.

The Photoshopped image was taken from last year’s ceremony when Barbara Streisand was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015.
